    Ambrose i feel is a more dynamic bowler, besides being able to more jaffas at the start of spells he also had a multi-faceted approach (besides bowling good balls he was more aggressive,physically menacing and had a more deadly bouncer than McGrath.) But tactically, and on ability to plot the batsman's downfall even on the most lifeless of pitches, McGrath would take the cake.

    Ambrose over McGrath, just. Although the gap will shorten if McGrath's recent run continues

    Mcgrath for me...

    Ambrose, ,just, because of the fear factor. Lets not forget McGrath has had wonderful support for most of his career to maintain the pressure.

    I voted for Walsh, although his batting could have been improved. 500 odd wickets has to put him over the top, plus bowling in tandem most times with Ambrose.

    Give it 4 or 5 more tests and McGrath will have more wickets than Walsh, and they all had 400 plus. Surely a few wickets extra doesn't matter that much.

    That's true to an extent with the ball, but more with the bat. McGrath has typically had more runs to play with, not that he gives any away...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I would go for Curtley as well especially on helpful wickets. But Mcgrath is one hell of a bowler and the one bowler i have the most respect for. In fact I will go as far as saying that with out Mcgrath (and to a lesser extent Steven Roger Waugh whom i also highly respect) Australia would not be the world beating team that they are today. Really love those contests between him and Lara stuff of legends!!!!
